the price is high and there are some quirks (I always get 8 unresolved items , the same, over and over again in my contacts) but overall it works like expected, which is a lot. I want my syncs to go unnoticed and most of all, no nasty surprise. I can handle having contacts in double, but not erasing them all! both of which haven't happened yet.
so, i'm pretty happy with it, and wish the developper will concentrate on furthering robustness and reliability instead of adding features. also, I wrote a question to tech support and got a response in 3 days (personal) so that's good, too.

I talked too fast - pocket mac completely trashed my calendars. Some entries are still ok, but most are now unreadable (example: M‚Äö?Ñ??‚àö‚Ć‚àö‚àǬ¨¬®¬¨¬©moire!) . It should be avoided until the developpers have resolved the problem.
this is really strange since pocket mac only syncs its own calendar, I don't see why it would modify the other ones. Maybe it has to do with the accented characters problem?
Of course, always backup your data before using sync tools for the first time.

Honnest comparison between missing sync and pocket mac by a real user and not a partisan.
Bottom line: both have big problems, but work well too for many things.

Pocket Mac:
can sync pictures and tunes to the storage card (big plus). Just like missing sync, an option to reencode tunes on sync at a lower bit rate would be nice too, just like resizing pictures works fine.

BUT it doesn't manage accented characters (!!! it displays garbage like ??33&é2ç((3 for each accented char, that is unacceptable) and uses its own calendar in ical (that's really a pity as I already have many calendars and do not wish to put all entries in a single one.) so it's useless for me as I mainly use it for calendaring and on a english system with french text. Also it leaves a lot of files behind after uninstall. It is much faster on syncing though (though that's the fault of iSync, not missing sync).

Missing Sync:
Works well for me. itunes and iphoto synchronization work fine but there should be an option to copy to storage card instead of built in or I always have to move to the storage card afterwards since space is limited in my built in memory.
An option to reencode tunes on sync at a lower bit rate would be nice too, just like resizing pictures works fine.
Calendar, contact and tasks sync are fine, no corruption like stated below and I've been synchronizing in both directions for weeks with lots of entries. It doesn't synchronize recurrent events and that's a big problem.


This is not a complete review, but why I chose one over the other, and their major pitfalls.

I personally use missing sync because it looks cleaner, but I understand why people would prefer pocket mac (if you do not have many different calendars, use a US system with no accents, and do not mind having a more "windows like" application, pocket mac seems more feature complete to me)

All this to say there is no real winner between both, each have its strengths and shortcomings. I also thinkk both are overpriced, although I am sure they necessitate a lot fo work, a price in the mid 20's would be more appropriate. $19.99 would be a killer tag. I believe they should really offer evaluation version, and that each product has its bugs. I also believe most of the comments on them on macupdate come from partisan users, or worse, developpers themselves trying to boast their product and sink their competitor's. I sincerely hope this will cease to make place for real reviews and comments. They should work hard to address the shortcomings I outlined and they would have great softwares.

I can be reached at alex27@dodgeit.com (public address, everyone can read it) if the developers wish to take contact with me (both ignored my only support asking email to them, I really have no time to bicker and send many to get an answer). I will update my reviews as versions come and go, and add or correct features.
